Tiny Pricks Makes Me Wonder…..

I was sitting in the living room stitching my  Tiny Pricks and thought of all women, over the centuries, who sat in their houses embroidering.   I thought of all the samplers, bible verses and saying I’ve seen I’ve seen in museums and books.

And for the first time I wondered how many women from the 18th, 19th and early 20th century stitched subversive phrases or words into their work as they sat in their homes stitching and stitching.

Maybe someone out there has a collection of them because now that I’ve thought about it, I’m sure they exist.
